Proud Sponsor of Jodi’s Race for Awareness!
Jodi’s Race for Awareness, June 10th!
When: Join us on June 10, 2017 for the 8th Annual Jodi’s Race for Awareness – the largest ovarian cancer race in the country!
What: We’re very proud sponsors of Jodi’s Race, it raises funds for programs of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance. It’s a great day to memorialize those we have lost to ovarian cancer and honor survivors and caregivers. We’ll be reminding you to check your eggs by handing out teal eggs filled with special prizes at the finish line!
Why: Jodi’s Race for Awareness™ was the inspiration of Jodi Brammeier, a Colorado native, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008 at age 41.She was unaware of the vague and often misdiagnosed symptoms. Since there is no accurate screening test for ovarian cancer, Jodi made it her mission to raise awareness of the risk factors and symptoms through this 5K and 1 mile run/walk. She believed she would have caught the cancer earlier had she only been more aware of the signs and symptoms. Her hope was for other women to find their cancer when odds of survival are much better, in hopes that some of the 15,000 women diagnosed each year might stand a chance to win the fight against this deadly disease.
